Free Miniature Pigs For Celebs?


There is no doubt that celebrities live the glamorous life. Sure, fame can cause you to lose your dignity, sanity and any reasonable concept of how many bedrooms one could possibly need. On the flip side, you do get tons of free stuff. And who wants to say no to free stuff? Especially if it is an adorable micro pet.

At last month’s Golden Globes ceremony, the swag — aka the free stuff — was flowing as usual. Except that amidst the fancy clothes, sparkly jewelry, decadent spa treatments and more, celebs were being gifted with those cute little micro pigs everyone’s been clamoring for — and concerned about — since Paris Hilton trotted out her own squealing piglet.

GBK, a luxury lifestyle gifting and special events company, included in its Golden Globes swag some lovely truffle salt, truffle oil and oh, yes, a certificate from Patty’s Royal Dandie Miniature Pet Pig farm for a free pig — valued at $5,000. New owners would be required to complete a one-hour course (a whole hour!) on caring for the squiggly piggly (which can range in size from 19 to 39 pounds depending on the type of pig) and then the animal would be hand delivered to the celeb.

    what a dumb idea. it’s not like those animals are like a purse or some trinket. the sensible celebs won’t be taking up that offer.
